Peninsula de Lisboa Portuguese Red
Step-by-step we increase the intensity and complexity from the Lisbon Region. This time a blend of CastelÃ£o (50%) and Aragonez (50%) which is aged for six months in oak barrels. There’s a beautiful clean structure about this wine (maybe the absence of the rustic Touriga?). Harmonious and spicy. Yum.Red BlendsOakey RedsPortugal2019750 ml13-13.5%

“The Prince” from The Treaty Port Estate China
From a vineyard established in 2005 on the Shandong peninsula by Chris Ruffle comes his unique, gold-medal winning, Petit Verdot/Arinarnoa blend. Gently oaky, this is a lovely clean, velvety red from one of the world’s new emerging vineyard areas. The Prince rather liked braised pork and Beijing roast duck, could go rather well with this wine!Red BlendsOakey RedsChina2016750 ml14%+

Quinta de San Francisco Portuguese Red
Single Estate red from the Obidos region. CastelÃ£o (60%), Aragonez (20%),Touriga Nacional (20%) are aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. This was my pick of the family’s three estate wines. Maybe it’s the Touriga Nacional which gives it an almost violet fruit over and above the soft, oakiness. It has won Gold at four separate competitions this year.Red BlendsOakey RedsPortugal2018750 ml13-13.5%

“The Inspector General” from The Treaty Port Estate China
From a vineyard established in 2005 on the Shandong peninsula by Chris Ruffle comes this classic Bordeaux blend, aged in french oak barrels and displaying ripe, dark fruits and a hint of vanilla oak. No surprise that Chateau Lafite chose to make their first Chinese wine, Long Dai 2017, from neigbouring fields! Chris’s vines are older, of course, and 2014 was an excellent vintage. This is a limited release of 5000 bottles.Red BlendsOakey RedsChina2014750 ml13-13.5%
Excelsior San Louis Shiraz
In 1979 San Louis fell ill, stopped eating and grew tremendously weak. His grave was dug, but as he was being led to it, the decision was made to try and treat him for a little longer. Seven months later he had recovered completely. On 7 February 1981 San Louis won the 1600m Guineas horse race, one of South Africa’s most prestigious races.
This vineyard is situated on deep, calcareous soils that allow deep root penetration. This enables the vineyard to withstand heat and drought.
This wine has an explosive nose of chocolate, espresso, fruitcake, and sweet oak spice. The palate is rich and very soft, with ripe flavours of black cherries and a long rich aftertaste.Shiraz/SyrahOakey RedsSouth Africa2019750 ml13-13.5%

Miguel Merino Rioja Mazuelo de la Quinta Cruz
Miguel explains how they are able to produce a wine from 100% of his lesser-used varietal. “Mazuelo is a fertile, vigorous plant which requires a long-cycle to reach complete ripening. It is also sensitive to many diseases. All these explains why Mazuelo is more adequate to the Mediterranean latitudes than to an Atlantic influenced land as Rioja Alta.
Only the extraordinary characteristics of our Quinta Cruz vineyard allow us to make this wine in our town.”Other Single Varietal RedOakey RedsSpain2014750 ml14%+
